From Tschierv down the valley through the Val Müstair to Mals. The easy bike tour offers numerous opportunities to stop for refreshments in every village along the route. With the UNESCO World Heritage monastery of St. Johann in Müstair, the Manufactura Tessanda, the valley museum Chasa Jaura or numerous restaurants with local specialities, there are already enough other reasons for a stopover in Val Müstair. From Müstair you cross the border into the neighbouring Vinschgau Valley, where you can marvel at various churches, castles and orchards on the way to Mals.

The individual towns can all be reached by public transport.

Wir sind diese Tour in mehreren Etappen in unseren Sommerferien 2013 gefahren. Sehr empfehlenswert! Nur der Rücktransport der Mountainbikes mit dem Postauto ist äusserst mühsam. http://idnu.ch/wordpress/on-route-27-durch-das-val-muestair-ins-vinschgau/
